Real Madrid are expected to name a much-changed side from the one that beat Alcoyano midweek in the Copa del Rey for their Primera Division clash with Zaragoza at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos, Pepe and Cristiano Ronaldo will start, but Sami Khedira, Alvaro Arbeloa, Fabio Coentrao and Marcelo are all injured and Xabi Alonso is suspended after accumulating five yellow cards.

Zaragoza, meanwhile, are still without the injured trio of Maurizio Lanzaro, Ivan Obradovic and Adam Pinter.

The Aragonese outfit will also ring the changes after resting a number of players for the Copa win over Granada on Wednesday.
